Details: The Ford Fiesta has gone through several phases of being popular as a service vehicle. 52 vans and one hatchback had been leased between 1985 and 1995, all being withdrawn by mid-1998. However, a few months later a new phase started with the arrival of nine further cars for use by London Buses, followed by a similar trio at the start of 2000. All carried the recently-introduced livery of red with a stripe made up of orange squares, and 'London Transport Buses' labels. These can be seen on 4878F caught coming off the end of Oxford Street on 1st May 2000. The limited photos and sightings available suggest that this car was based at Stratford Bus Station. The buses are both Olympians, on the left is a Metroline Volvo with Alexander bodywork, while behind the car is an ECW-bodied Leyland of Cowie South London in the short-lived yellow stripe livery.
